In 2008, the Innisfree became the first c�il� band from North Connacht to win the coveted All-Ireland Senior C�il� Band competition at Fleadh Cheoil na h�ireann.\r\n\r\n

The North Connacht musical tradition of counties Sligo, Leitrim and Roscommon, and its strong association with the fiddle and flute, played a key role in the early recordings of Irish traditional music during the early 20th century. Emerging from this era, names such as Coleman, Morrison, Killoran and McKenna left a stylistic mark on music throughout Ireland and the United States, a rich heritage maintained in subsequent decades throughout the North Connacht region by a legion of superb musicians including Fred Finn and Peter Horan. \r\n\r\n\r\n
